, gm is alive and osama bin laden is dead, that's not foreign policy so mitt romney has a grand opportunity to raise his poll numbers by putting obama's feet to the fire. >> there's only one candidate who politicized the death of four american heroes, you know, late at night on september 11th and he was really rebuked by many leading republicans for how, you know, just not ready for prime time he was. i think he showed his lack of depth and experience on foreign policy clearly on september 11th, but i think, you know, all of the calls and points to that this is a coverup is-- it's really laughable in a sense. i don't want to, you know, take away from the seriousness of the loss of american life, but you know, my mom always says, i look for love in all the wrong places. republicans and angela, you and your counterparts are looking for a coverup in all the wrong places. >> i have not said one time it's a coverup. i believe that susan rice was a good foot soldier for the administration, but to even look at the fort hood attack, we said that was work place violence and found out tha
and others passed it. >> brian: it is what is on the ground and senators have foreign policy experience. how does that factor when they go head-to-head. >> wait, wait, wait. four years of foreign policy experience, i mean, right before that, with due respect to the president of the united states, he just had a couple in the united states senate and state legislator. i don't think that there is a material difference in experience on that front because the governor is chief executive of a state but also commander in chief. you have direct experience with how military works and bain capital covers the globe. you understand how international markets work. i think you can certainly pick out deficiency on the governor's side from the stand point of foreign policy. but understanding both markets and again, the political of having one branch under control and accountablity of that. >> steve: you know what governors do because you did in in south carolina. thank you for joining us. >> brian: coming up, keep your kid no, sir school or lose your welfare benefits. we'll debate it. >> steve: ladies, talk
's boston brain trust. all year long they have been mapping out the narrative on foreign policy, endless ll lly portraying the president as anti-israel. all they needed was a little third party cover and look what happened. unfortunately for poor mr. romney, it's only going to get worse as more people pick up on his oft repeated line and finally start calling it what it is. >> first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical exploitive term that is also a lie. but that doesn't mean we should be penalized for it. that's why liberty mutual insurance policies come standard with accident forgiveness, if you qualify. learn more at libertymutual.com.

have shown that barack obama is losing a little bit in foreign policy and they seem to sense maybe there's an opportunity there. here he is criticizing the president for his handling of the libyan consulate attack. >> i think there have been a number of members in the administration, including state department who said this was a terrorist attack. the white house and the president are continuing not to admit what their own administration is saying, and i think it's pretty clear that they haven't wanted to level with the american people. >> the campaign obviously things they can get some traction on that. do you think they can? >> i thank can because on this case the facts are kind of on his side. i mean the obama administration's reaction to the libyan attack, specifically blaming it on the video for ore a week really wasn't a fine moment for him. he should level with the american people. if you don't know anything, don't say anything. he can get traks. he made some missteps and so he was unable to take vax of that as much as he could. but he definitely can do so in the future. >>
the ball when it comes to foreign affairs and foreign policy. for him to admit, yep, there was a terrorist attack on my watch, we did have warnings and our ambassador was murdered, that's not helpful to his reelection campaign. >> brian: but he did say america was attacked. he didn't say september 11. he doesn't link it to terror, but he did say for the first time we were attacked on tuesday. >> steve: sure. so what's going on with the president? john sununu, great defender of presidential nominee mitt romney, he was on with hannity last night. he had this to say about the president's reaction. >> look, let me tell what you the big problem with this president is, in my opinion: he is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. when he doesn't go and attend 60% of the detailed presidential daily briefings that come from the c.i.a. and thinks he can just skim the summary paper on his ipad instead of sitting down and engaging in what i -- i was in a white house with george herbert walker bush. he took that brief every day. george w. bush took it every day and i believe that bill clinton took
of ideological divergence between romney and obama. those are the two critical issues here. on foreign policy generally the president has had an advantage. somewhat unusual for a democrat. seen more capable handling foreign policy. his job approval have been better than ratings on domestic policy. but with netanyahu raising the question -- with the differences being made so visible by netanyahu's own visibility, the question for jewish support in a couple places that could matter. it's not inconceivable given the arguments from the israeli prime minister. >> they're not going to meet face-to-face. they're both obviously here in the united states. but there will be a phone call tomorrow. what's the political fallout from this decision that someone made that the president should not get together with netanyahu during these final weeks of this election? >> well, look, relationships are fraught between president obama and netanyahu as they were between clinton and netanyahu. netanyahu and his view of the world and what it takes to make israel secure is closer to a neocon republican view of what i

-- the american people can be confident of is this president understands how to deal with foreign policy and how to keep america safe. he's taken terrorists off the battlefield, including osama bin laden. he's ended the war in iraq and strengthened our relationships around the world. mitt romney would go back to the cowboy diplomacy that got us into many of the problems the president faced when he came into offense. >> i want to play you poart of mr. romney's speech. take a listen. >> egypt now with the muslim brotherhood president, pakistan high highly tu mu tu with us. >> pakistan, highly tumultuous. >> sounds like he didn't get far into his briefing on pakistan. i mean, of course, pakistan, afghanistan, that area of the world, you know, is an area that the president has focused on. he's taken a number of terrorists off the battlefield. >> tumultuous? it's going to be tumultuous tonight at the ravens game against the cleveland browns. that's tumultuous. pakistan is tumultuous? >> mitt romney just about every time he appears in public he shows how ill prepared he is to be president or commander
motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. >>> the obama administration's foreign policy moved domestic concerns to the side for a time this week. the president on tuesday addressing the u.n.'s general assembly meeting. the middle east and the threat posed by iran's nuclear weapons program topped the agenda there. after his speech, the president had no follow-up meetings with foreign leaders, not even with the leader of our closest ally in the middle east, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. prime minister netanyahu addressed the assembly thursday. and he famously used that image of a bomb with a lit fuse to make the point that iran cannot be allowed to make a nuclear weapon. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. >> joining me now, mark regev, the chief spokesperson for prime minister netanyahu. good saturday afternoon to you, sir. thank you for coming back. >> my pleasure. >> governor romney spoke with the prime minister by phone on friday after the call. governor romney spoke with reporters about possible action against iran. tak
people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avhe of one of his deputin libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try torounrest. so look i thin one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the short end of this, i doubt very seriously that the administration will try to mislead the american people at a time when as we all know that this administration has been hunting down al qaeda leaders all throughout the middle east and northern africa as well. >> i don't know if you heard, david, mike huckaby suggests this could be worse than watergate. watergate he points out no one was ki
of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts at the time and for her to go on all of those shows and in effect the spokesman for the world and be misinforming the american people and our allies and countries around the world, to me somebody has to pay the price for this. we have too much things go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. i think we have to send a clear message. on such an issue where an american ambassador was killed where by all the evidence at the time the presumption had to be it was terrorism. i can see why if they wanted to say -- whether it was intentionally or unintentionally and to show the significance of that, i believe she should resign, yes. >> because there is a statement that the spokesperson, the director of public affairs for the office of the director of national intelligence put out today they are saying it was obviously a terrorist -- an action, a deliberate and organized terrorist assault carried out by extremists affiliated or sympathetic with al qaeda, that's today's statement. but they also said this, and let me read
, with foreign policy so critical, you know, are social issues going to be the deciders as they have in past elections, or do you think voters are basically going to wipe the slate clean and say no, no, no, we've got to focus on getting the economy, the economy, the economy, social issues can go by the wayside. maria? >> well, that's such an interesting question, deb, because this is something that i've actually written about. this is where i think republicans have really gotten it wrong. yes, the economy is the number one issue, but guess what, mitt romney has now lost his edge on the economy. and president obama is now outpolling him on who is trusted more with the economy. so with that, what will happen when voters go into the voting booth, they will look at the economy and how both candidates will deal with economic issues, but they will always -- and this is even including when romney had an edge on the economy, they will always look at other issues because american voters are not monolithic. so if you're a latino and you go into the voting booth, you're going look at how these candidat
personal relationships do matter in foreign policy. and there was an article in "the new york times" yesterday which caught our eye here. it had a quote from a middle east official. it said, you can't fix these problems by remote control. president obama doesn't have friends who are world leaders. he doesn't believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames. you can't accomplish what you want to accomplish with such an impersonal style. do you agree the president has an impersonal style? >> not at all. i think he has met extensively with his counterparts. when you look at bibi netanyahu, i don't think there's a world leader he's met with more. he picked up the phone, they had an hour long conversation. this is a scheduling income patability. he spoke with leaders from egypt, libya, yemen, a number of other countries just last week in the wake of events in the heeft. this is an everyday part of his job. and he takes -- he relishes it. he does it with gusto. he has very strong relations with a number of these leaders. >> yet there is a feeling that he doesn't have deep personal relati
to be foreign policy and that was just after the meltdown of lehman brothers. jim hehr asked some domestic policy questions. it's not moderator jail if you make a mistake. >> do you typically have that kind of freedom? >> no, but what if they are going to do if they ask that. i'm not sure it rises to this point. i doubt he would do it. i'm sure both candidates will be prepared for it. >> it will be great to see your interview with paul ryan who is the vice presidential nominee. chris, thanks so much. >> alisyn: up next, red states rising. new statistics show personal income is up in republican leaning states. who is responsible for their growth? we're going to ask wisconsin's lieutenant governor. >> and new jersey wants you to buckle up your pets. governor chris christie is saying wait a minute. more ahead. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ honey i just wonder ♪ >>> spain turns violent as thousands of protestors clash with police, demonstrators are upset over budget cuts. two people were said to be hurt and 12 detained. you could end up paying more for plane tickets after you buy them. if they get the
